obama is the winner but just by a little more than 70,000 votes and that hooray was not for obama, it is because it is finally finished. governor rick scott has called for a review of the voting process in his state. we have asked governor scott to come on this program to explain just what happened in his state because it ain't like they didn't have warning that there would be a lot of lines with a long, long ballot. but he's declined three days straight. today he's attending a veterans parade in jacksonville, florida, at this hour. we'd like the governor and his office to know that we're going to keep on asking until he explains why the long ballot and cutting of the early voting was cut short. >>> we heard minutes ago from dana bash on the fiscal cliff negotiations and now i want to go to wolf blitzer on the tax issue. we heard a sharp distinction between taxes and raising income, the tax rates themselves, and now comes this potential bombshell from very powerful conservative commentator bill kristol. have a listen. >> the leadership in the conservative movement needs to flow ba
, everybody join me in thanking the pam. panel. [applause] ♪ >>> now, former state department officials from the obama and george w. bush adds -- administrations talk about student exchange programs, social media, and voice of america broadcasts. from george washington university, this is a little less than two hours. >> i think it's going to be a great event. judith jumped the line at union station and aannoyed probably 150 people to get here. >> [inaudible] >> that's action. i hope they were not from other countries. i'm a professor here at gw and director for institute for public diplomacy and education hosting this event. find us on twitter. we're also on facebook, and we're also hosting a conversation on twitter about this event, hash tag ipdgc, and i welcome you to participate in that happen what i'm going to do to get this rolling is give brief introductions and bios for the great panel here and get going into the discussion, and we have a lot of interesting people in the room so i know we have to leave time for discussion. first, we have ambassador glassman, executive the george w. b
belonging to a dynasty. how about that? >>> up next, the former cia director, david petraeus, put state secrets in peril. the president said there's no evidence, but senior senators accuse obama of a possible benghazi cover-up. we'll get right to that also. >>> this president and this administration has either been guilty of colossal incompetence or engaged in a cover-up, neither of which are acceptable to the american people. >>> we have this fiscal cliff staring us in the face. >> i don't think this country can tolerate another driving close to the precipice dynamic. >> most i know don't want to work with the government. >> don't even get close to the fiscal cliff. >> in rising above, we've got to find a way to move forward. >> i have confidence the fiscal cliff will be dealt with. >> what i'll tell the president is we're here to help. >> we have another pin that you could give to president obama. >> for your rise above pin, go to cnbc.com. if we want to improve our schools... ... what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent re
cain or obama? >> well, there's no reason why the president of the united states and the commander in chief would not be told that it was al qaeda, and he is privy to all classified information. i can person-- as far as susan s concerned, she's a cabinet member, she went on the sunday shows and repeated over and over and over what we knew at the time could not possibly be the full story, and i was on this show with you two ladies before she went on those sunday shows and i said if you think this is about a youtube video, then get in line for a female procedure, which i will not again repeat. it was clear to reporting, to anyone who picked up the newspaper who read -- even read foreign papers that what susan rice was pedaling on those sunday shows was not the full story. even though she insisted over and over and over again that this was a spontaneous mob action, which as we have now learned, did not even take place. she has to be held accountable, as well as the people who -- president obama himself who said they put her out there to carry this water. why? >> all right. we're going to leave
, they are burning up the phone lines. that's essentially what the united states is doing. you know, of course, president obama is watching this very closely, but he is being updated by secretary clinton, and i just ran out of the briefing to do the slide shot. the briefing here at the state department. they gave a list, again, of more phone calls. the secretary has been making over the past few days. you know, it includes the prime ministers of basically from israel, egypt, the u.n. secretary general ban ki moon. french foreign minister qatari prime minister, foreign minister, and the turkish foreign minister. you can see what they're doing is tapping the countries that have the most influence. number one would have to be egypt. very, very important. also turkey. you can see the delicate balancing act by the president and secretary clinton is saying the same thing. on the one hand israel has the right to defend itself against these rocket attacks from gaza, but it also has to try to keep this to a minimum and try to bring this as they keep saying de-escalate the situation. suzanne. >> jill, s
served in the illinois state senate with president obama. fed me give you to respond to what you have heard to chris van hollen on the notion of taxes and republicans being prepared to extend the bush tax cuts for those earning less than $250 a year to attack there is ambiguity on the democratic side of the aisle. there is something that chris did not say and that we have not heard from the president. the ambiguity is -- who is risk that there is a 250 description. there is a 500 description. there has not been a clear discussion on the impact of the past two entities. i represent suburban chicago and many other folks across both sides of the aisle. i represent entities that are organized and very little discussion beyond the bumper sticker rhetoric on the impact of pass-throughs as relates to these higher rates. the second thing is the -- to notice what we have not heard from the white house? but we have not heard from the white house is a discussion of the other component that is -- where are the spending cuts and the savings? there has been a lot of discussion about that. there has
to actually have a budget for the first time in four years for the united states of america. and again, barack obama is going to look at his legacy and looking at markets. he has a terrific opportunity right here and right now to embrace small business, get the markets growing again and really do a lot for his legacy in the long run. rick: simon, americans do seem to want to see a certain level of cooperation between the parties. you know, but this is a president who has not really shown a willingness to reach across the aisle. now in his second term does that change? >> well, i don't agree with the first statement but i think that he has made it clear from his statements of the last few days that he expects to work with john boehner and republicans and mitch mcconnell in the senate to try to, you know, tackle a few big things. i think one of the things my, the other guest said, which is just fallacious and wrong and shouldn't be repeated is that the idea that the raising rates on people over $250,000 is going to hit a majority of small business owners. >> simon, y a small business. you're a p
states and there's something kind of breathtaking about that. if steve is right and if, you know, obama care, the kind of seat of obama care is his legacy, what's doubly interesting there is how accidental the birth of the kind of proto obama care, romney care in massachusetts was. what happened there was a buddy of his tom, the founder of staples, you know, kind of casually mentioned to mitt when he was coming in as governor that, you know, some doctors over at mass general were having trouble dealing with their uninsured and there wasn't any kind of internal, you know, deep ideological commitment to making this happen. >> very much sort of the accidental tourist. >> totally. >> in terms of politics. we have to go. the other thing we didn't talk about, jonathan, mitt romney sort of an ac crow nistic 1950s character in an america proven to be a very very different place than the 1950sing and '60s, a browner, more female, younger and more fired up. >> and a little more progressive. the problem mitt romney had, he brought confidence or he thought he did, but he was rutterless. the compete
this fight put president obama in? >> well, look, president obama's larger foreign policy goal is to both secure a peace deal in the region but also improve the united states' relations with the islamic world. and the fact that you have this new government, after the arab spring, which has been the administration has seen as a success overthrowing autocrats who have been somewhat friendly like hosni mubarak, you have egypt embracing hamas, putting the united states at odds with its ally in the region israel, it makes it difficult. so every statement that we've seen from the white house about his consultations whether it's with mohamed mursi from egypt or benjamin netanyahu has the word, as you just mentioned, deescalate. they want this to be tamped down, and it is probably in israel's interest to do that, to avoid further inflaming the region. but, hamas seems to think that they would benefit from prolonging and es cal eighting the conflict. >> okay. >> i want to get your take on former cia director david petraeus appearing before the house and senate intelligence committee. it seems each

. then they find the e-mails. with petraeus. you really could not make it up. tomorrow, president obama will speak about this, if anyone asks him about it. likely john kerry will be announced as defense secretary and susan rice, ambassador will be announced for secretary of state. what do you think of that? >> the question we posed in the tease in the last block do you think you are safer with john kerry as a defense secretary, and susan rice as secretary of state, versus what you have right now. you have a general, four-star, maybe a five star general keeping the place safe. john kerry is the one you want? i don't think so. >> eric: the highly decorated soldier of any other soldier that ever held that -- >> eric: did he decide to keep silver stars or renounce them and throw them over the -- >> bob: he earned silver stars. >> eric: he denounced the service. >> bob: because of an illegal war. >> dana: it was reported today that eric holder will probably stay as attorney general. >> greg: that excites me because i'm a huge fan. it's incredible how the administration fail up. susan rice is appointing
obama's foreign policies ahead. he will have to deal with an entirely new team. he came in and put hillary clinton as secretary of state, inherited bob gates and inherited gen. petraeus and put him afghanistan and cia and now he has to fill those positions and see who can help him deal with these challenges. >> bob, as one who has more than a passing acquaintance with scandals, where do you think the so-called libya scandal is now? >> i think there are serious unanswered questions but the suggestion they should have watergate style, independent special committees to investigate this, i don't see that yet because the question seems to be what did susan rice know and when did she know it? which falls not very high on the scale of do we really need to get to the bottom of this? i kind of disagree with chuck. i think we will find out what happened and i think we should. and you never know what this is going to show. but the real issue is libyan policy. you know, what are we going to do with this country that -- we don't know what the future is. and a light footprint might be the answer
, and that is where i think that israel and the united states very much had this sort of camaraderie and even despite the bad blood between netanyahu and our leader president obama, and the countries do maintain a healthy relationship, and you have a lot of american jews who do have dual citizenship as well even today. >> point that out, because the jewish vote is very vital in the country as we watched it play out in the election, and why is that? >> well, listen, first of all, they have a fantastic lobby which is called apac which is american israel political action committee and they do a fantastic job in representing american jews before the congress. there's the one thing with congress that they can -- the one thing they can agree on these days is support for israel and the ability to defend themselves, and in fact, they recently passed unanimously, resolutions in both chambers saying that israel has the right the do so. so the israeli population is at one point 70 years ago was 3.5% of the american population, and today it is around 2% and in apparently something like seven years, seven years,
